European Union

Horizon 2020 – Work programme 2018-2020 and List of calls particularly interesting for Korea!

The European Union’s Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020, including preliminary information on all calls to be launched until 2020 has now been published.


Horizon 2020 is the EU funding programme for research and innovation running from 2014 to 2020 with a €80 billion budget. H2020 supports scientifically-excellent research, innovation, and technological development, through collaborative and innovative research projects as well as grants and fellowships to individuals set out in the Horizon 2020 work programme. The vast majority of this funding is allocated on the basis of competitive calls open to applications from researchers, businesses and other interested organisations located in any of the EU Member States or countries associated to Horizon 2020.

It is open to the world, so Korean researchers and institutions are very welcome to get involved.

The final Work Programme for Horizon 2020 covers the budgetary years 2018, 2019 and 2020, representing an investment of around €30 billion.

Access all open calls on the Horizon 2020 Participant Portal by entering the Topic ID of the call in the search engine (top-right corner of page).

Organisations from any sector and country, including Korea can participate in H2020 projects. However, Korean research institutions are not eligible for direct funding by the European Commission. Please note that Korean individual researchers are eligible to funding by MSCA and ERC.

Cooperation with Korea is a particular priority for the EU as the potential to work for  mutual  benefit  in  a  wide  range  of  areas  is  especially  strong.  Therefore, Korean participation is welcomed in all Calls for Proposals under Horizon 2020. The latest Joint Science & Technology Cooperation Committee emphasised the need  to  deepen,  scale  up  and  open  cooperation  in  selected  thematic  areas  of mutual  benefit.

These  areas  include  both  long-standing  common  priority  areas (5G,  IoT,  Cloud  and  AI;  nanoelectronics;  nanosafety;  clean  energy  innovation; infectious  diseases; epigenome  research;  satellite  navigation  etc.) and new areas  of  mutual  benefit (antimicrobial  resistance;  automated  driving  systems, disaster-resilience and security,  polar  research  etc.),  as  well  as  cooperation under schemes for researchers' mobility (ERC, MSCA).


ERC Starting Grants – call to be launched in September

European Research Council’s (ERC) Starting Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators at the career stage at which they are starting their own independent research team or programme in all scientific fields.
